I have a westinghouse Fridge "freezamate" 381 from around

Customer Question

I have a westinghouse Fridge "freezamate" 381 from around 1984. It doesn't cut out but just cools all the time and freezes the food. I replaced the thermostat but it still doesn't cycle off.

Hi my name is ***** ***** can you tell me if the compressor is hot or just luke warm?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The compressor is hot. See the photos which shows one side of the internal coils are frosted yet the right hand side is not
Expert:  bonzaco replied 4 months ago.

Now that is what I would call quality - first thing you have to do is find out what the actual temperature is inside the refrigerator ie air temperature and secondly if you can find out what the temperature is at the thermostat probe. Could you also tell me what thermostat you have fitted?

I noticed the unit is now cycling so it looks as though I didn't leave it long enough before testing. Thank you
